I'm not sure if this technique mantains the integrety of the cellular
compartments, but if you have the equipment it sure is inexpensive... I was
thinking about sonication... If done right, I suppose it will disrupt the
cellular membrane only, but I don't know about the ratio of lysis...
Say something if you try it or if you find out any other way ok?
